“There are 3 holes down there?!” Sexual Anatomy 101

By Leslie Massicotte, Teens Climb High Coordinator

**Content warning that this post includes drawings of sexual anatomy.

If the title quote is any indication, a lot of folks aren’t getting the education they need about their sexual and reproductive anatomy.

Understanding your own body and knowing the terminology of your body parts are super important for experiencing pleasure, encouraging positive body self esteem, and promoting mutually pleasurable, consensual, and fun experiences with sexual partners. We need to know about our parts in order to talk about them and have (safe, healthy, consensual) fun with them.

So….here are some diagrams to help you learn about different sexual and reproductive systems and to understand the function of all your parts.

Note that these diagrams are EXAMPLES. Bodies are supposed to look different and it’s ok if yours doesn’t match these ones exactly. Body diversity is totally normal and wonderful.

Some folks have penises and testicles and they are typically assigned “male” at birth:

Some folks have vulvas and ovaries and they are typically assigned “female” at birth:

Some folks are born with genitalia that are neither female nor male or include some aspects of both. These folks are called “intersex.” Intersex folks are about as common as redheads!

Intersex individuals can have variant chromosomes, hormones, or genitalia so sometimes their differences are obvious by looking at their external sexual anatomy and other times, the differences are chemical and invisible.

Many doctors and families insist on performing surgeries on intersex babies to make their genitals fit more traditional understandings of male and female genitals. However, these surgeries are medically unncessary and many intersex folks advocate for being allowed to exist in the bodies they were born with. (Check out the Intersex Justice Project to learn more!)

This diagram shows someone with congenital adrenal hypoplasia (CAH), one type of the many varieties of intersex.

The need for comprehensive education on sexual and reproductive anatomy. The title quote underscores a common gap in knowledge that many people experience. Understanding one's own body is fundamental for several reasons: it can enhance personal neal fun pleasure, foster positive body image, and support healthy, consensual sexual interactions.

The title "‘There are 3 holes down there?!’ Sexual Anatomy 101" suggests an educational piece aimed at clarifying common misconceptions or knowledge gaps about human sexual anatomy. This topic is crucial for improving sexual health literacy, which is often overlooked in traditional education systems. Such knowledge empowers individuals to make informed decisions about their sexual health and fosters a better understanding of their bodies. While the inclusion of a Poppers shop, known for selling adult recreational products, might initially seem unrelated to a purely educational topic, it subtly highlights the disparity between the commercialized aspect of adult sexuality and the lack of basic anatomical knowledge among many adults. This contrast underscores the importance of comprehensive sexual education that goes beyond…
